The broadband problem anatomy of a market failure and a policy dilemma by Charles H Ferguson ( )
12 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 2,121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
While the Internet revolution has vastly improved communications among businesses and individuals in the US, pressure has been building for faster and less expensive broadband data services. However, broadband services and prices have not kept pace either with demand or with progress in information technology. This title analyses the markets and policy issues underlying the broadband dilemma. Ferguson asserts that the Telecommunications Act of 1996 and federal policy have failed to provide sufficient levels of new entry, competition and innovation in the local telecommunications market, which remains dominated by monopoly telephone companies. New entrants and Internet-based firms remain disadvantaged relative to the monopoly incumbent local exchange carriers (ILEC). The combined result of these market and policy failures is inadequate technological progress, innovation and productivity growth in advanced Internet services and in telecommunications services in general. Ferguson believes federal policy must be adjusted to ensure the robust infrastructure necessary for advanced Internet services, electronic commerce, open-systems HDTV, videoconferencing and improved voice telephony

No end in sight : Iraq's descent into chaos by Charles H Ferguson ( Book )
8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 831 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A ... chronicle of the reasons behind Iraq's descent into guerrilla war, warlord rule, criminality, and anarchy ... It features candid interviews with high-ranking officials ... as well as Iraqi civilians, American soldiers, intelligence officers, and prominent analysts... Together, these voices reveal the principal errors of U.S. policy -- using insufficient troop levels, allowing the looting of Baghdad, purging professionals from the Iraq government, and disbanding the Iraqi military -- errors that largely created the insurgency and chaos that engulf Iraq today. The book brings the movie up-to-date by evaluating the military's recent 'surge' tactic as well as current administration policy. It concludes with a wide-ranging debate on the crucial question: what do we do now?"--P. [4] of cover
Predator nation : corporate criminals, political corruption, and the hijacking of America by Charles H Ferguson ( Book )
7 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 813 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Over the last several decades, the United States has undergone one of the most radical social and economic transformations in its history: Finance has become America's dominant industry, while manufacturing has nearly disappeared. The financial sector has become increasingly criminalized, with widespread fraud going completely unpunished. Federal tax collections are at their lowest level in sixty years, with the wealthy enjoying the greatest tax reductions. Most shockingly, the United States, so long the beacon of opportunity for the ambitious poor, has become one of the world's most unequal societies. If you're smart and a hard worker, but your parents aren't rich, you're now better off being born in Munich or Singapore than in Cleveland or New York. This radical shift did not happen by accident. Author Ferguson shows how, since the Reagan administration, both major political parties have become captives of the moneyed elite. The Clinton administration dismantled the regulatory controls that protected the average citizen from avaricious financiers. The Bush team destroyed the federal revenue base with its tax cuts for the rich. And the Obama White House has allowed financial criminals to continue to operate unchecked, even after supposed "reforms" installed after the collapse of 2008.--From publisher description
